equalizer in our society is and always has been public education. the democrats allowed control of our schools, and the republicans permitted the idea that a magnet school, or a charter school is an adequate replacement for engaged, well-paid, focused teachers who act at the direction of their local school district, not the national education association or the national federation of teachers or any other union. we have-- >> about that fight there. >> and we have so many disconnects and the penalty is found in the drop-out rate of this country. they are an absolute disgrace and we have educators, secretary of education, karen lewis in chicago, leading the the employees union, they are a disgrace because they're acting as if they have the problem in hand. meanwhile, school districts are going bankrupt, the teachers' organization admit they're working for themselves and not for the students, and the parents are not engaged in the teaching of those young people, who are our future. >> megyn: but it's the point that knowledge is power and better educated the children are whether they're on
ties of trade and commerce, development of education, opportunities for all afghans, men and women, boys and girls. this sends a clear message to afghans and to the region, as afghans stand up they will not stand alone. the united states and the world stands with them. now, let me close by saying that this continues to be a very difficult mission. our forces continue to serve and make tremendous sacrifices every day. the afghan people make significant sacrifices every day. afghan forces still need to grow strong. we remain vigilant against insider attacks. lasting peace and security will require governments and development that delivers for the afghan people and an end to safe havens for al-qaeda and its ilk. all of this will continue to be our work. but make no mistake, our path is clear and we are moving forward. every day more afghans are stepping up and taking responsibility for their own security. as they do, our troops will come home. and next year, this long war will come to a responsible end. president karzai, i thank you and your delegation for the progress we've made toge
